Oh Say Can He Sing

April 5, 2009

WIVB ran a story tonight about Sabres anthem singer Doug Allen, who has entered the USA Weekend Anthem singing contest. Singers nationwide are invited to submit video of themselves singing the national anthem. The top 15 videos (as judged via their YouTube stats) will be graded by judges based on originality, lyrical accuracy and popularity on YouTube. The winning singer will be invited to sing the anthem at the Smithsonian and a Baltimore Orioles game on Flag Day.

Unsurprisingly, Allen’s submission is from his singing at a Sabres game. His submission can be viewed on YouTube, by searching “oh say can you sing doug allen.”

Here’s wishing him the best of luck.



  1. Doug is one of the best things to happen to Buffalo hockey in a while….it just isn’t a hockey game unless Doug is singing the National Anthem and pointing at us!!!!!!!
    He’s the best!!

  2. 5 starred and commented. Go Doug!

    If only it was a competition for the US and Canadian anthems together!
